Pints for Prostates Racing This Weekend in Las Vegas and Boston

Spectators watching races that take just 6 seconds and one that takes several hours will get exposed to the Pints for Prostates campaign during the next few days.

Bob Yonke is turning heads as a 49-year-old rookie campaigner in the NHRA Pro Stock series this season, having reached the finals at both Phoenix and Charlotte, while currently holding down the ninth place spot in the standings. He is also raising awareness about prostate cancer by carrying the Pints for Prostates logo on his Pontiac GXP.

“Instead of leaving the hood on the car blank while we look for a primary sponsor for our team, we wanted to put that real estate to work for a cause that should concern all men: prostate cancer,” Bob Yonke said. “It’s no secret that in our sport you need money to be competitive and have a chance to win. The team has been working extremely hard and by joining Greg Stanfield’s operation, we’ve had a solid start to the season. I believe we are starting to prove to prospective sponsors our early season performance is no fluke.”

This weekend Yonke Motorsports is again carrying the Pints for Prostates logo on the car at the The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway from April 16-18.

In Boston on Monday Patrick Grubbe and a few of his training partners from Columbus, Ohio, are going to be running in the 114th Boston Marathon in Pints for Prostates singlets.

Grubbe qualified for the Boston Marathon back in October 2009, but his training was sidetracked a bit because of treatment for prostate cancer. He is pushing forward and not allowing his illness to keep him from the 26.2-mile marathon. Please have bib #9158 in your mind on Monday.
